It's a little late but here it is: Merry Christmas! I had a great day with my family and Grandpa (who came from France). I love that I ended up staying home and relaxing. I was originally planning to go to London with my boyfriend, which would have been fun but crazy and hectic. Instead I got a thoroughly relaxing and perfect day at home. We opened presents, had French toast, then cleaned up the kitchen and got started on the turkey. We had hours of old-fashioned sitting around listening to music; I was sitting working on a new necklace (which I'll be adding to my shop soon!), my mom was knitting, and it felt like I was transported back to a Victorian Christmas. In the evening we took a walk into Leonberg's Alt Marktplatz (Old Marketplace) and saw the lights. It was one of those rare days where everything is just perfect. (Picture credits go to my sister...)

Wishing I could get inside...
Isn't it beautiful...?
I love these swirly housetops!
